Communication (Public Relations)
About the Program
C-SC’s Communication program develops communication skills to enhance personal and professional opportunities. Students can focus their studies in one of three areas: media, sports communication or public relations. The major does require at least three semesters of practical experience in either the student newspaper, the student operated radio station or the student-run TV studio. Most students also complete a professional internship to enhance their experiences. All graduating students are required to complete a portfolio of their best work to assist them in the job interview process.
What Makes the Program Distinctive?
Culver-Stockton’s Communication major is a distinctive program, preparing graduates for careers in media, sports communication and public relations. Professors educate and train studetns through career-based assignments, practical hands-on experiential learning in our TV and radio stations and newspaper and case studies. Our students may choose to focus their studies in one of three communication areas: media communication, sports communication and public relations. We also share a strong speech and theatre education major with the Theatre Department.
